5.0 out of 5 stars Excelent for fast learning Jan. 24 2012
This book is very useful if the reader is not familiar with the famous (or inafamous, for some) ribbon. It goes straight to the point and the color illustrations are great, they look just like they appear on the screen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Teach Yourself Visually Word 2010 Oct. 27 2012
By Robert III - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I recommend Teach Yourself Visually Word 2012.

I chose it as the text book for an adult education course I taught this fall (2012). I believed that it would be a great resource for students during the class and an equally beneficial reference book after they had completed the class. Now that the classes are over, I feel that this was a good decision. I will use it for future Word 2010 classes that I teach.

The book covered all the topics needed to gain a broad understanding of Microsoft Word. This is important to people who want to gain computer skills demanded by many employers. The only other thing needed to become a successful user of Microsoft Word is to practice the procedures clearly illustrated in the book.

I have used a personal computer for about 30 years and Microsoft Word for around 20 years. Nevertheless, I still learned some new operations from Teach Yourself Visually Word 2010 while teaching the course and I rediscovered how to perform some tasks that I had not done in a long time.

I highly recommend Teach Yourself Visually Word 2010 for anyone wanting to learn how to use Word 2010. I also recommend it for experienced users who want to have a handy and clear reference book for when they need to review procedures for operations that they don't use often.

By going through this book page by page - I am learning a lot of short cuts and also things that I never knew word could do. This book is a must for those that are just starting word.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you are running word 2010 this book is a must. May 1 2011
By Dorothy Small - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
When I first tried to use word 2010, I was forever lost.
This book is a must for anyone without formal training for use of Office 2010 software. The book however is only for the Word portion. But very helpful for the novice. I am happy I have it.

Whatever you need to do you can find very quickly and do it without pulling all your hair out. I was stuck with a simple thing I could not figure out but the book saved the day. Highly recomended as the new software is amazingly complex for casual users.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Absolute Best. Sunday Funnies Meet The Missing Manual. May 29 2013
By T - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
With color-coded arrows, concise written directions and actual screenshots of ribbons, dialogue boxes and layout views, this book serves as an excellent tool for learning Word and as a rapid-entry bookshelf reference source. The Table of Contents is clear and the Index is complete.
In the few weeks I have had this book I have found that each function is described in a direct how-to style that incorporates the appeal of color and non-textual graphical aids that make it simple to figure out what to do to accomplish a task in Word 2010. There may be shortcomings but I haven't found any.
The bright colors throughout and weird funny graphics add to the joy of this book, making it a great pleasure to use instead of the irascible and dull chore some of this book's competitors have made of learning Word. Their approach makes Word into a beast of computerized inner secrets. But this book is entertaining while sticking to the point...no personal anecdotes nor digressions down memory lane or gripes about Microsoft. Nor does it stoop to gushing praise.
I tried about a dozen other Word 2010 reference books and Tech Manuals, some paper, some electronic, but this gets the gold medal. This is the book to have no matter how versed you are in using Word, unless you have already memorized all of Word's features. Left out of this book are many esoteric Word features. But they aren't missing, they are just beyond the scope here. Subjects such as the vocabulary for Visual Basic which you would need to write new commands or extend Word's capabilities are not here. World-class computer-program designers, such as the heads of Information Technology departments for major corporations, will find this book beneath their needs. Unless their needs include rapidly bringing other employees up to speed in using this vital tool of the modern office. Church officers, school teachers, newsletter organizers, book writers, bloggers, magazine reporters, and everyone else who communicates in writing needs this book to get the most out of Word.
For those of us who need to quickly figure out how to get their work done, this is a vital tool.
I supplemented my learning of Word by using Internet searches, YouTube, the Microsoft Word Learning Web site and Word's own help system to become a competent user of this extraordinary word processor. "Teach Yourself VISUALLY Word 2010" lacks those long lists of Access keys and shortcut Key Combinations other books are so fond of. But you can find dozens of those lists for free through Google or print your own from Word's Help files.
In sum, this book is well-organized and stuffed with good information. I believe I received a valuable resource for my money. I returned for full refund two other paper books on the subject I bought from Amazon, including one of those Dummies versions for Word 2010. I considered sticking to all Kindle versions because they are easy to store and keep near me as well as being easy to navigate, using electronic bookmarks and my own notes. But I kept this paper book after examining it closely for several hours and finding it so informative, easy to use and quick to reveal its secrets. Kindle versions of some books offered by Amazon made them easier to use than paper but this book works even faster and with more fun to answer questions than the e-versions of those others.
